    Also. Overwatch really doesn't want me to play with friends. I keep lagging and it makes me sad :(

    Mike (@QuakesGameSpot) reported

    @Vareforu I feel ya there. That's something I have to be careful about with my machine. Most big games like Overwatch and Fortnite are played at their bare minimum settings and even then I can sometimes get lag. If I had a PS4... oh boy... I'd be gamin' for /real/. XD

    Theo 🥧 (@LUNIQSO) reported

    Bc of my high ping and lag I stopped playing Overwatch. A game I almost spent everyday for 1 year playing. Maybe when I move I can start taking it seriously again but I don't think I wanna play comp until then.

    Overwatch has problems with it, but I think deleting brig and reworking Mercy are the least of its problems right now, make the game more competitive, take it seriously Blizzard.

    I really wanna stream my grandmaster rank games on overwatch, but not sure if i should. Dont know if people would want to watch and i also might lag and i dont wanna be the person responsible for losing my team the game

    @HoshizoraOCE Freedo also did another video talking about a lot of the actual issues of Mercy and how she isn't as fun to play, and he wasn't even against mass rez per se. I don't think your overwatch is in the same camp as some of the other channels.

    I've run into a problem, I can't get a good look at KrampusRats' prosthetic leg :/ (or really his lower half in general) I'm still determined to finish this before the event starts #overwatch #KrampusRat #bestskin

    @AccelHasGoodAim @FlyingfrogsES @pokelawls Overwatch is one of my favourite games, and I play it almost daily, Blizzard is consistently just making it worse and worse with terrible balancing and well I mean the fact that Brigette is still a character is a problem in its own. It's dying because it's just killing itself.

    @Varsity_Designs well in the overwatch community where this situation is happening, many well known trans people have said it offends them. that’s when people need to stop using it & they don’t stop. that’s the issue no matter what

    Not very excited about Overwatch anymore. They keep adding unnecessary things but ignores the looming balance issues. It's hard to play the game and enjoy it; a burnout is an understatement. That said I haven't played since Ashe was released on the ptr

    I love #blackops4, but man the hitreg is honestly unacceptable levels of bad for a AAA title in 2018. you're lucky if you go one whole game without any of your shots failing to register. compare it to overwatch for example, where you can play for an hour with virtually no problem

  • veIoure
    pussy galore (@veIoure) reported

    one of the main problems with overwatch - whether it be quick play or competitive - is that people refuse to fill a role even for one game. and when those ******** figure out that a team filled with dps isn't working, they get upset and leave to ruin another game for someone else

    Moving problems. I went from Halloween to Thanksgiving in what felt like five days, suddenly we're at the beginning of Overwatch Winter Wonderland tomorrow and my brain is sputtering.

  • StrikerHLTVorg
    Milan Švejda (@StrikerHLTVorg) reported

    @CarbonDogma I did play Overwatch at the beginning, didn't stick to it even though it was kinda fun. The problem with those games for me (multiplayer in general) is that they're competitive and that makes me want to be good = spend way too much time on them.

    @Regretful_Death hold a grudge against someone so Jack doubts Gabriel will be an expectation. Things will go well. Loyalty is showed with actions and Jack is determined to fix things between them. They can get a new start now that there is no more Overwatch. He had to look away, because -

    @TeriosGaming I don't have trouble having fun in overwatch. I just go in, play arcade/quickplay, mess arouns, play custom games, and play one or two games of comp and that's it. Stop investing so much time since that seems to be a huge issue for people.

    Sad to see how badly the Overwatch-Community is losing players. We have the main problem that too many casuals are posting issues that aren't necessary. We have to care about new content and comp-concepts, not about why the Hammond Portrait-picture isn't 3d.

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN Hey Ive been having a lot of connection problems in the past few days. Today it took about 15minutes just enter overwatch. And after that, when trying to connect to quickplay (for example) i just get stuck in loading screen and get 'failed to connect to server'

    @Slip_shock @anthemgame I was able to resolve the issue. Installed a new CPU and cooler into my gaming system. The cooler wasn't cooling well causing my computer to shut off. After getting off Anthem it was doing it on Overwatch as well. Was able to play Anthem on Sunday after fixing the cooler.

    I’m seriously not convinced that the Overwatch team looks at the numbers for console players because Pharah is STILL an OP problem after those changes they made to her.

    @ATVIAssist BO4 PS4 Wireless This is the only game I have problems with. Every other game (e.g. Overwatch, Destiny) works great. I’m tired of rubber banding around the map and getting kicked whenever I try to find a different lobby.

    @ioStux In overwatch it's very easy to tell what the big change will be because you have to deal with stupidly broken shit for 5 months until it changes, so even when they do finally fix it you don't feel excitement

    @PlayOverwatch For me.... Overwatch is just gone i don't recommend this game anymore to anyone. I would play it again if like the season updates would have like more backstory or other game modes not just PVE or Snowball fights or Capture the flag. Plz blizzard fix your game.

    @RevertMercySays @DulcetRefrain The problem with mass res today is that it had even more potential to be overpowered. You can shoot revert + tweaks till the cows come home but no one outside of those who played mercy want to go back to the mass res days. Especially in today's meta of overwatch.

    @MaryIsHellaCool I like Overwatch too but I kinda prefer the gameplay that Paladins has especially that your permanently locked into one champion and you aren't able to switch until the whole game is done unlike OW where if you die, you can switch characters that can lead to many problems😬.

    Just delete mercy, brig, doom, and dva, disable a hero from the player's hero selection screen with a one tricking sorting algorithm, and add like 11 avoid slots (to dodge the whole match). I just fixed overwatch xddddddddd~ Sigh... The only fix is to delete the game itself.
